ITS in Work Zones


The use of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technologies in work zones is an emerging area. Using ITS technology in work zones, such as traveler information systems, ramp metering systems, intrusion alarms, and queue detection, is aimed at increasing safety for both workers and road users and ensuring a more efficient traffic flow. These technologies provide the means to better monitor and manage traffic flow through and around work zones. Minimizing the impact of work zone delays through technology has a positive impact on mobility, safety, access, and productivity.


This site is a location where you can find resources on specific ITS in work zones technologies. These resources include case studies, evaluations, standards and specifications, guides, and other information provided by transportation agencies. The information is organized into the following four groups:
